Could be water in your transmission fluid, or its just burning out slowly.
Check the fluid to see if it is a clear reddish color. If not, then thats bad.

Transmission slips a little when cold and in cold weather only


My solution would be to recommend a transmission stabilizer additive. Lucas Oil makes a transmission stabilizer. The cost is about $12. Be sure to read the instructions...you need to warm the motor and ******...add through the transmission dipstick fill tube. This additive can work better than a fluid and filter change...depending on your mileage, many mechanics do not recommend opening the transmission pan to drain and replace fluid, and filter. This additive is the best one that I have used. It works to reseal and lubricate your transmission seals, and bands. Hope this helps.

2004 ram3500 transmission slippage when warm


Hi, transmission slipping normally does not occur when the transmission is warm, as warm temperatures favor proper working of the automatic transmission systems. Nonetheless, if problems such as, broken transmission bands, gears or torque conversion already exist, then the transmission might slip even in warm temperatures. Another situation may arise, if the fluid suffers from contraction in cold weather and gradually the weather warms up sufficiently, to expand the internal parts and fluids. Then due to cold weather, a small transmission problem might occur. However, the problem may be too small to affect the vehicle. However, warm weather cannot be directly linked to transmission slipping.
